Allen Matkins Welcomes Labor and Employment Partner Grant P. Alexander

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#allenmatkinsAllen
Matkins
, a California-based full service business and real estate
law firm, announced today the addition of labor and employment partner Grant
P. Alexander
to its Los Angeles office. Grant’s practice encompasses
a wide range of employment litigation matters including the
representation of employers facing wage and hour class actions, as well
as claims of discrimination, harassment, misappropriation of trade
secrets, and wrongful termination. He also counsels companies on various
compliance issues involving free speech in the workplace, the
preparation of employee handbooks, sexual harassment training, executive
employment agreements, and adhering to ADA regulations for company
websites and mobile apps.

“Grant’s experience and success in representing clients across a broad
spectrum of employment matters – both litigation and preventive
counseling – makes him a valued addition to the firm’s labor and
employment practice,” says Dwight
L. Armstrong
, chair of the Labor and Employment Practice Group at
Allen Matkins. “We’re continuing to add bench strength to our labor
group that already has a dynamic presence across all of our offices and
throughout the West Coast.”

While Grant’s diverse client list includes large companies in the food
and beverage, retail, technology, and travel industries, he oftentimes
works closely with CEOs and owners of smaller businesses while serving
as their external human resources consultant. For example, he frequently
guides startup companies – particularly in the mortgage lending space –
on developing and implementing executive compensation packages. Grant
has also represented clients in state and federal agency investigations,
in arbitration, and before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority
(FINRA). In response to the closely-watched issue of NFL players
kneeling during the national anthem, Grant has become a leading voice –
both through published articles and speaking engagements – on what
rights employees have, or do not have in the workplace, and how
companies should be handling free speech-related disputes.

Grant received his juris doctorate from the University of
Wisconsin Law School and his bachelor’s degree from the University of
California, Irvine.
